Spring time is here in the Houston Texas area and one of the great things about this time of year is that it’s also an excellent time for owners to landscape their rental properties.
After doing a complete property clean up at your rental property you can get your landscape looking fantastic by following these tips:
You may think that the old oak tree on your rental property doesn’t need tree fertilizer, but that’s far from accurate. If you have older trees on your property, then you can do light feedings several times a year. However, keep in mind that it’s better to fertilize less than to over-fertilize and cause damage to the tree.
Fertilize any ground covers after removing any debris, such as dead branches and fallen leaves. In addition, replenish any mulch beds if you notice them getting low. Harsh winter weather can take a toll on trees and shrubs, so adding more mulch will keep the roots protected until the weather gets warmer.
Turn Over the Soil
Turn over the soil on warmer days to expose insect eggs that have been laid underground and will hatch in the spring. When soil thaws and refreezes, it destroys eggs and cuts down on the overall pest population that you’ll see when summer comes. In addition, it improves the soil’s quality. This helps when it’s time to reseed or mow the lawn when it’s time for the first cut of the season.
Choose The Right Landscaping
Once your landscape is ready for planting it’s important to choose the right plants.
It’s best to choose plants that are similar to what other home owners are planting in the area just so you don’t plant anything that doesn’t make your rental stand out like a “sore thumb”.
You should also choose plants that don’t require a lot of maintenance just so landscape maintenance will be as easy as possible for your tenants.

Curb Appeal Improvement Tips
Homes with high curb appeal command higher prices and take less time to sell. We’re not talking about replacing vinyl siding with redwood siding; we’re talking about maintenance and beautifying tasks you’d like to live with anyway.
The way your house looks from the street — attractively landscaped and well-maintained — can add thousands to its value and cut the time it takes to sell. But which projects pump up curb appeal most? Some spit and polish goes a long way, and so does a dose of color.
